Nike's striped football jersey update for 2016/2017 is the Striped Division II.  Different to most striped football jerseys, the Striped Division II comes in a choice of long or short sleeves and features plain coloured sleeves and a plain back.  The striped element on the front of the v-neck style jersey is a gradient print effect from chest to hem giving the shirt a unique appearance for a striped football top.

Striker has been in the Nike teamwear range for years, and has now evolved into Striker IV.  Using most of the popular colours seen on the Striker III design, the Striker IV offers teams a classic look for a team kit football jersey, with a v-neck contrast colour and contrast banding along the shoulders down to the sleeve cuffs.  Available in long and short sleeves, the Striker IV comes in a choice of 10 colours.  Fans of the Netherlands or Dundee United will love the Safety Orange/Black/White colour in the Striker IV.

Park now reaches its 6th edition, with the Park VI available in short and long sleeves.  The Park VI features a cross-over cut on the neckline and mesh side panels.  This jersey is also made from Nike's Dri-Fit fabric which helps wick moisture away from the body when active.  The Park VI is available in 15 colours, including traditional ones like black, white, navy blue, royal blue and red, to more unusual colour choices like Hyper Verde (Green), Vivid Pink, Court Purple, Volt Yellow and Jersey Gold.

Nike offer 10 football jersey styles in total including Challenge, Energy III, Precision III, Sash, Victory II and Park Derby so there is a great choice of kits for football teams to use this season.

New for 2016/17, the Team Matchfit Core OTC Sock offers a professional matchday fit.  Using Dri-Fit technology, these football socks have a performance cushioned footbed so are very comfortable to wear.  For a great quality football sock at an unbelievable low price, the Classic II is one of the best in the business.  Available in a huge range of 18 colours to cover all team colours, the Classic II features an articulated specific footbed for a superior fit.

As well as the standard Park II goalkeeper jersey and padded goalkeeper trousers, Nike offer keepers a great design for their new season’s kit with the Gardien.  Featuring a black pattern on the sleeves that is sure to dazzle opposing forwards, the Gardien is made with Dri-Fit fabric and has raglan sleeves which help with a full range of motion when worn.  Matching shorts and socks are available in the 3 colour choices for this brilliantly designed goalkeeper kit by Nike.
